1. Light jersey dress. A couple of years ago, a friend gave me a dress (for some reason) in this GORGEOUS kelly green jersey. It was very flattering, comfortable and perfect for dressing up in summer. I somehow lost it at some point (BAH!) and have been looking for a decent replacement. Until I found this crazy gem:
See the twirling? This thing could not be more comfortable. And it's hard to see here, but I love the deep blue-green color of it. It came from the (Half of Half) store with a REALLY HUGE rip (seriously, maybe 5 inches?) in a seam, but there is so much fabric in the skirt that I realized it would be extremely easy to fix. So I did! This dress is by Sine and distributed by Anthropologie. (A discount store with a separate anthro rack? Why isn't there one near me?)
2. Next is my motivation to exercise (aka bikini) from a thrift shop. (NWT.) I wasn't quite sure how to show you, so I improvised:
It's difficult to see, but keep in mind that those are cool-looking paislies and the cups are a lot less over-full without the dress and things on. : P It's Victoria's Secret and I love it. Don't tell them, I'm still playing mad because they have so few small-chested offerings.
3. Skirt to be altered!
I would never have considered high-waisted things for myself before beginning this blog. Amazing, especially as I have a little high-as-my-waist-can-go moment here for the last few weeks. Anyway, this lovely linen skirt called out to my in its especially melodious 99-cent voice, so I had to take it home. What do you think about my proposed length there? It's a bit shorter than most of my skirts, but the knee-lengthe or just-touching-knee length really just didn't work for me. Pleeeeeease feel free to leave a suggestion below!
See you soon!
